(vo)only on current tv. this show is about analyzing, criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years.

of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government

base will do the same in 2016. they put up with george bush i, put up with bob dole. deeply disappointed by george w., disappointed with mitt romney. will now come loaded for bear for 2016. i predict the hard right will take over the republican party in 2016 and the nomination is going to rand paul. you watch. this is what i do for a living. >> well, i kind of doing it for a living. i get predictions wrong, too. i love he went out on a limb there. i guess i don't quite see it with rand paul for a couple of reasons. one of them i look at is we're talking about ted cruz, talking about rand paul, scott walker. there's going to be so much territory that's occupied by all sorts of different candidates on the right, i almost wonder if that's a perfect setup for the establishment candidate who seems to win these things. >> in the last six iowa caucuses, the winner has won the nomination twice. it's not a path to the nomination, santorum, huckabee, et cetera. also the moderate candidate or the mitt romney won last time, john mccain before that, this candidate tends to win the primar

john mccain got great press when he ran against george w. bush in the primaries. in 2008 he was on the other end of that. those things ebb and flow a little bit. i do not think in anyway those are the decisive in the way of presidential campaigns come out. i think if you talk to the romney people they felt that governor romney was unfair at different points along the way. i used to get e-mails about things that were being written or said or talked about. in general, i think those things balance out. in this campaign in particular there was never any question about vulnerabilities or weaknesses in terms of what happened with the economy. in a sense that both of them had had was they have to deal with. host: on twitter -- guest: perhaps so. especially with his medicare plan and his proposal to make a voucher out of that. i don't know it would have been significantly better had he picked someone else. host: jim messina asked to pledge that they do not rerun the 2008 campaign. jim messina explained that in their bid for reelection, both jimmy carter and george herbert walker bus

bush, and george w. bush. they say that, quote, there is no longer any credible scientific debate, end quote, about climate change. and they also point out that our window for action is shrinking. they say they support the actions that the president is now taking under the clean air act to reduce carbon pollution, and they call on congress to start the overdue debate about what bigger steps are needed domestically and internationally. and they conclude with this very powerful statement. quote, the only uncertainty about our world is how bad these changes will get and how soon what is most clear is that there is no time to waste, end quote. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. for what purpose does the gentleman from arizona rise? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> mr. speaker, i rise today to address attorney general holder's misinterpretation of federalism and his disregard for our system of checks and balances. the supreme court was clear in shelby vs. hold
